MIKE @ Sound House
At twenty-three years old, MIKE's age can be deceiving. He is an integral figure in birthing a new sound and style of hip hop that has gained wide influence since it first broke in underground circles in 2017, and MIKE's music itself carries the insight, pain, and fatigue that often comes with age and long life lived.
The rapper has brings a unique flavour to his music given his background. Born in New Jersey, MIKE moved to London with his mother before settling in The Bronx for the remainder of his later teenage years. Both regions have had an audible influence on the young rapper's music, from grime to hip hop he drew influence from artists like MF Doom, who shared a similar journey.
Price €17.35 / 8pm / Tickets available here.
Confidence Man @ Vicar Street
The Australian electro-pop duo head to Dublin's Vicar Street this weekend, showcasing their new album 'Tilt' which released earlier this year.
Confidence Man are unarguably one of the hottest acts on the planet right now. A portable party that's levelled dance floors and flattened festival crowds as it's rolled out across the world, their performances are custom designed to make you dance and lose your cool.
Price €16 / 11.30pm / Tickets available here.

HTRK @ The Workman's Club
Few groups in history, recent or otherwise, elevate mood to such singular, smoldering supremacy as the Australian duo of Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang aka HTRK [‘Hate Rock’]. Across nearly two decades of work, wounds (co-founder Sean Stewart tragically took his own life in 2010), and world tours, their sound has shape-shifted between densities and intensities, noise and nakedness, but never wavered in its delicate poetic gravity.
Theirs is a chemistry of smoke, echo, and the undertows of desire, the dislocation of cities and memory, the melancholy of distance and deepening night. It’s music of solitude and sensuality, for small hours and lost weekends, spoken in an intimate shadowplay language of skeletal electronics, velvet voice, and noir guitar.
Price €22.50 / 8pm / Tickets on sale here.
David Gray @ Musgrave Park
Multi-platinum British singer-songwriter David Gray is hitting the road in 2020 to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of 'White Ladder', his fourth studio album which sold seven million copies.
